11:06 am
regular army has no stomach for the fight and that the fanatics from galicia who are the backbone of the so-called national guard which is really the right sector dressed into regular national guard uniforms are not able to do the job so it is far better to grego the crisis at the lower level of intensity of violence then to try and force the issue in a way that might indeed result in some dramatic bloodshed right now members of a national guard squad have returned to kiev for a rally they are demanding an end to the truce on the resumption of the military operation a crowd gathered in independence square which earlier this year became the creator of the riots saying that i've said the previous authorities of ukraine. feeling from the conflict in the easter tens of thousands of ukrainian refugees the u.n.

11:08 am
comparing his country to relationship with the u.s. to a sexual act according to a leak by a polish online magazine writer sikorsky believes his country is essentially pleasing america with little in return which according to him mix warsaw is subservient partner in fact he say's it gets worse not only is the alliance with america worthless but it has eliminated poland's biggest neighbors russia and germany moscow was somewhat sympathetic to his comments though saying the cross language was most likely a response to similar hurtful comments made by the us deputy secretary of state so that would be great i think to help blew this thing and have the u.n. help glue it and you know. it's not just the u.s. the polish foreign minister is less than satisfied with sikorsky pulled no punches when speaking about the u.k. prime minister's dealings with euro skeptics suggesting david cameron budget
11:09 am
pressure and went soft when he should have stayed strong as if that wasn't enough of course he went on to remember other times he believes cameron misfired politically saying he's not likely to change needless to say they embarrassed only frank diplomatic conversation has caused quite a stir here's what some of the commentators we talked to are saying. let me start which is obvious far for everyone here in poland for most of the analysts as does the voice only to share by most of the population here actually it raises other troubling questions about the judgment of a man who is after all his country's chief diplomatic representative who aspires to be the chief diplomatic representative of the entire european union and the governments he has been so scathing about the governments of britain and the united states the very countries which have supported him throughout his career into which he owes so much i think it shows that there is a real awareness among the circles of power in poland as to what the relationship with the united states has really brought them which is nothing and more news and

views coming up this hour including resistance is futile we look at every armed swat units are being used to read suburban houses across the u.s. spreading fear of fatalities along the way. living on the syrian rebels because soon benefit from some half a billion dollars the u.s. plans to splash on their equipment and training following months of pressure from washington's war hawks president obama asked congress to approve massive aid to the anti assad fighters just a year ago washington gave the green light for a non-lethal aid to reach so-called moderate rebels but that leader ended up in the hands of jihadists anyway and america was forced to suspend the aid whoever earlier this month america admitted it's been convert lee sending actual weapons to the opposition experts warn the us has not learnt by its own mistakes. the obama policy from the beginning has been for regime change as we saw in libya as we saw in
11:11 am
ukraine and we've seen in other parts of the world and so now the administration is going to be providing if approved by the congress higher quality weapons to the rebels but the rebels are into mission with the if they can interchange an interconnected with all the jihad and the jihad is control large part of territory they control large checkpoints the united states appears to have a schizo front of foreign policy there they're saying they demand unity in iraq behind the central government which is fighting what they call islamic extremist from sis and at the same time they're funding these same armed groups in syria to take down an independent nationalist and sovereign government in syria what the u.s. is doing and has been doing this finally in money guns and more occupation tools in a region that it considers to be vital because it's resource rich that's about it. iraq has learned the hard way how us aid come be used for all the wrong reasons
11:12 am
right now some american hardware including several humvees are being used by extremists there the equipment was cultured off the jihad is to control of iraqi army warehouses the extremists are continuing their advance on baghdad with fierce fighting around fifty kilometers from the capital. there's also the starving evidence as to who is being forced to join the militants ranks as you can see in this video boys on with automatic rifles are traveling in an isis convoy some children are also reportedly being used to snipers by to harvest it all equates to iraq being pushed to the brink of reports. despite the chaos spreading across the country and home in the kurdish capital the city is just sixty kilometers from the isis front line but a downtown erbil it was business as usual kurdistan has often felt like a separate country altogether even at the height of iraq's most violence and bloodiest moments now but the current crisis threading the country to pieces it's
11:13 am
closer than ever to becoming one kurdish soldiers are now in control of territory that used to be disputed but no one here seems to think that just harvest would dare march on them. but i have full faith in the forces the one lets anything happen. for some the prospect of a divided or rock was a welcome one do you think that iraq war made of one country as we know what's after this crisis may be this it may be that iraq will have to be divided will have area and the sunnis and shias will have there is no one in kurdistan is more and we have oil we have a strong army. they may have oil but fuel is running scarce for days now iraqi forces battled with isis for control of the country's largest oil refinery this is one of the first things you notice here in our build these massive gas lines some of the cars have been here for hours since the morning many
11:14 am
people in fact camped out overnight to try to get online so they can get gas frustrated residents line up to get their share authorities have limited each individual to thirty leaders that's less than what it takes to fill two tanks the people we've spoken to said there haven't been lines like this for fuel since big outbreak of the u.s. led invasion back in two thousand and three and although there are shortages here in erbil parts of northern iraq have run out of gas even on the black market and so people are stocking up they say that they don't know what the ring the fear is that if you get a lot worse before it gets better that's a sentiment we heard from many here and it's not just a nice fleeing the violence we encountered shia refugees to foxtel gonzi job or came here six days ago from baghdad in baghdad the situation has gone from bad to worse people are arming themselves and getting ready to fight one another all you see the future is bloodshed and violence if something doesn't change iraq will be
11:15 am
a country of new friends and we do see caffein of erbil iraq. the news continues here in r.t. after a short break. there's a medium leave us so we leave that maybe. by the sea potion security play your part of the musical. for shoes that no one is asking with the guests that you deserve answers from it's all politics only on our team. for. now a. part. of one. night

11:17 am
ukraine as a european country under the forty nine article will have an opportunity. for the membership perspective this is a very important for ukrainians to work up a financially challenge europe still doesn't appear to be quite ready for ukraine the use commissioner for enlargement has said kiev still needs to prove its european credentials on and not reforms the block's energy commissioner has warned the be a light for greece is peanuts compared to what will be needed to save kiev's economy the president of the european commission says the e.u. is simply not ready to welcome ukraine right now and that sentiment is also echoed by the foreign minister of europe's power heise germany which comes as no surprise to financial experts patrick young. ukraine which last year was in a catastrophic position how that signed a free trade association this year is going to associate with the european union out the point when it's on the brink already of economic disaster this is a cop

a strong move for the ukrainian economy the only winners i do this are a few sadly deluded egos whether they are in brussels whether they are in washington who believe some they've achieved a great geo political victory for the people of ukraine there are no jobs to be hired here there's only going to be job losses right from the outside washington's been blaming russia for funding the conflict in ukraine and threatening sanctions on unless it stops but america's plans are facing staunch opposition from western businesses and here's why russia being an emerging market with a growing income has been quite attractive for u.s. companies the possibility of being cut off from the market is making american business bosses nervous but just who is involved in russia well boeing by nearly a third of its teeny i'm here in the country is also one of the fastest growing markets for pepsi u.s. car manufacturers also have a huge interest in the russian market with general motors and ford selling tens of
